    This weekend I broke out my fantasy LNE U23B locomotives and ran them for awhile. Now let’s take you back to somewhere in the mountains of Pennsylvania circa 1970. A Western Maryland F7A and F7B are winding down their service handling a train of empties. They happen to pass a LNE general merchandise train headed by a couple of U23Bs.

    Hey Tom, what scruffy mud hole did you say they had to wallow thru? Beautiful pictures and I love it. GREAT weathering.

    Nice pictures, Tom. I've always liked your 20 car train threads: they're a great way to showcase your freight cars and locomotives. I've done a couple of them myself and I'll eventually post them when I learn how to shrink the photos. Nice weathering, too.

    Thanks everyone!

    The P&LE gondolas are P2K RTR 52'-6" Drop End Mill Gondolas that I picked up off EBay a couple of years ago.

    Hi Tom,

    Another set of great pictures!! You sure make us feel as if we're standing by the right of way watching those trains go by...

    You still owe us a little clinic on how to take pictures like that...
